Murdered by My Boyfriend

Synopsis: At a party teen-ager Ashley meets the older Reece, whom she finds handsome and charming with the ability to make her feel special. They start dating and, whilst it is apparent that he is pathologically jealous and possessive, the naïve young girl initially finds it reassuring that he cares for her alone. However when she is pregnant he viciously hits out at her, later apologizing in floods of tears and begging forgiveness. Ashley assumes that it was her fault for antagonizing him but his violence continues and he becomes ever more controlling. She decides to leave him but he is not the sort of boy to take rejection lightly and tragedy results.

'This is the end of my story.

'The journey here was not


'It began when I fell in love.

'When the only future I could imagine

was happy.

'I held on to that dream for as long

as I could

'until my broken body and beaten


'were forced to let go.'

Yeah, serious, though. It works.

Just ask the universe for whatever it

is you want

and if you really, really believe in

it, then you get it.

Karen did it and she got ten grand.

Yeah, cos her mum died.

Yeah, ten grand is ten grand, init?

Guess what I found in my bag when we

were getting ready? What?

Half a kebab. That's disgusting.

It must have been in there since


Oh, we didn't have kebab on Friday.

Last Friday?

Shut up, I feel sick.

So, what are you asking for?

Oh, you know, love, marriage,

babies, my own salon.

What would you ask for?

Don't know...

world domination?

Erm, I was going to ask for that.

You'll have to fight me for it.

So embarrassing!

Oh, my God, did you see that?

Jaime was blatantly checking you

out. Was he?

Yeah. He's liked you since school.

He was all like...

It's all wonky.

Shut up. It's perfect.

Why don't you take it off, show some


No, you don't look fat.

You look beautiful.

Oh! I love my big lying friends.

OK, you'll drink anything,

won't you?

It's not bad, is it?

Erm, can I get you one?

Yeah, white wine, please?

White wine.


Don't put me off.

Say when. When.

Erm, what's your name?


I'm Reece.

Erm, I'll see you later, yeah?

Yeah. Yeah, I'll see you later.

I know. Who was that?!?

Well, you better be. If you want to

you can.

What... I... I don't think I could,


I get so embarrassed. I get so


There he is.

I told you, I told you.

So... Right.

You're right. Come on, come on. OK,

do I look all right?

Yes. You look fine. You sure?

He's going to think I look rough.

Ash. Ashley.

Oh, hiya.

Oh, what, you're pretending like you

don't recognise me?

Hey, you look really nice. Thanks.

Where you going?

Nowhere special. Look, wait down

there, yeah.

Wait down there for me.

So, do you go to college full-time?

Part-time and I... erm...

and I work in a clothes shop on

Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Yeah? Mm-hm.

So, what you going to do when you

finish your course?

Work for someone else for a bit.

I, kind of, want to own my own salon

by the time I'm 25.

I love it.

I don't know... People just say it's

nails or whatever, but...

I don't know, I kind of think it's

more than that.

How do you mean?


you're there for your clients when

they get married

and have babies and get divorced


I guess that's why they call it

beauty therapy.

Yeah, that makes sense.

So, what about you? I mean, what do

you do?

Erm, well, right now I'm breeding


What sort of dogs?

Staffordshire Bull Terriers.

OK. I... erm... It's not like that,

you know?

They're all kennel club registered,

but that's just for now.

I mean, long term I want to get into

property development.

You know, like buying property,

doing them up, selling them

and that.

Wow! That's...

Yeah, that's really cool.

'I told him about my salon.'

He said he was interested in nails.

I know!

Oh, he's got these eyes

and he just looks at me.

I know what eyes are for,

you cheeky cow!

'Ah, it's the way he looks at me.

'You know, he really gets me.

He listens.'

So lovely, so lovely.

'No! No, he's a gentleman.

'It's different!

'But it feels different.

'Yeah, I am.'

I'm really, really happy.

I'm really, really happy.

How do I keep it, you know?

Sabrina? They're my mates.

What, those two? Yeah.

Right. Hold on, I'll be back, yeah?

All right.

So, what do you think of him?

Very nice. He's nice, right?


Hey! Hey.

Hiya, you look gorgeous.

Can I get you a drink?

Sparkling white wine, please?

Yeah, and you? Erm, rum and coke,


Cool, anyone else?

I'll have the same. Same.

Erm, has anyone got any money?

Ah, I'm just screwing around.

Ah, thank you.

See? He's looking after you.

I can't.

Oh, my God! You're so beautiful.

I saw you before, you know?

You mean before the party?

Yeah, you were in a clothes shop


and you were dressing a dummy.

And I thought you were so beautiful.

So, why didn't you come in?

Cos I knew I'd see you again.

How did you know that?

I just did.

It's fate.

Can I tell you something

and you promise you won't laugh?

On the way to the party...

..I wished that love would come into

my life.

And I heard you, didn't I?

Stay. Just... No, I can't.

You got a text.

Reece? I just want to see who my

competition is.

Reece, give me it.

Who's Mick?

Reece, come on, give me it.

Give me the ph... Give me the phone.

Hey, look, come on. Eh, come on!

I was only playing.

I can't believe you don't trust me.

Wha... I do trust you.

It's the other guys I don't trust,

I mean, look at you.

Look, I don't want to lose you.

You're not going to lose me.


So, who's Mick?

It's Michaela, you d*ckhead!


I'm coming in.

What's it say?

Reece, please. Can we just talk about

this? Please?

Talk about what?

You made your decision.

I don't know what I think. I'm...

only 17 and I'm still at college.


You just tell me you're having

my baby.

OK. So, I've got a picture in my

head of you, me, our family...

I...I didn't know I wanted that till

you said it.

And now I can't get that picture out

my head.

Ashley... this really because of college?

I'm only 17.

I'll look after the baby while

you're at college.

I'll look after you.


I love you, Jones

and I love our baby.

And I swear I'll never leave you.

I'm not a child, Mum.

It's what we want...

We want to be a family.

And I love him.

You don't even know him.

I don't want to fall out with you.

Come on, we're not going to

fall out.

I just want you to think about your

options. That's all.

I will, Mum.

I promise.


Oh! Do you like it?

Ah, they're so cute. Yeah?

Ah, little baby clothes.

But we're going to be a family

and surely a family live together.

Why do we need to do what everyone

else does?

It's what normal people do, Reece.

I don't understand why I just can't

move in here with you?

I told you. It's not that kind of

place. Well, why isn't it?

You can't have a baby there. Right,

not with the dogs.

It's not safe. OK.

Why don't you just get rid of the


My dogs are my dogs.

Yeah, and your baby is your baby.

So, what am I supposed to say

when people ask why are we not living


Say it's got nothing to do with


And what about my mum?

What about her?

Am I supposed to say that to her,


So, we're not even going to have a

conversation about this, then?


We have a baby on the way. You do

realise that, yeah?

We need to make plans.



Reece? Rocco!

Reece, why can you not be a grown-up

about this?

I mean, you told me you were totally

committed to me and OUR baby.

God, you know what? You're more
